When it’s over, the film is like window shopping. You see the merchandise, but you don't get to explore them, touch them. You see elements of bullying, friendship, and family, but you don't get to embrace the themes, because the film moves so quickly, it completely misses the emotional depth of these elements. After finding a broken robot named Cody in a dumpster, Henry (Bobby Coleman) decides to put the metal parts together and make it his best friend. But, their friendship is tested when Cody regains his memory and seeks out his creator, who is on the run from a corrupt businessman. The film feels like a mixture of Spy Kids and ET, but doesn’t have the appeal or intelligence of either. The acting is noticeably forced, making the film plummet further. The only pro to this film is that you can leave the room and let the kids watch it on their own. It is completely child friendly. There is no deliberate violence (only comedic action) or bad language or inappropriate behaviour. This is hard to find today, even in family films. Young children will like the idea of a robot being a child’s best friend and adults will like the idea of having a robot that can renovate their house in one day, plus detail a junkyard car. Quite unlikely in the real world. The lightheartedness is just that - light. So light, it evaporates from my mind.
